History holds secrets, mysteries, pain, and power. But, these emotions are often not captured well in the books. We learn a lot in schools and colleges about our past as it's important to be aware and educated. It is also taught to us so that we don't repeat the same mistakes. The World Wars were a proof of that. We as humans have created civilizations and destroyed them as well. I guess we might be the most dangerous breed of all.

History has a different outlook and sometimes what was possible before, seems unbelievable today. We pushed ourselves to great extents. Books might tell you that certain incidents happened, but you feel the magnitude of those emotions only when you LOOK at what might have happened then; hence pictures take the leap. Pictures have the power to turn sympathy into empathy.

Have a look at some of the most iconic moments in history!
